Losing an important piece of information when it is needed most can be very stressful for anyone. The paperwork may have accidentally been thrown away, or have been placed in the wrong file cabinet, or even shredded.
Instead of stressing about it, there are a few things anyone can do to help them locate the paperwork in the home. If it cannot be found, there are still ways to locate a copy without having to spend a lot of time on it.
Look Through The Original Box And Packaging
The first thing anyone should do when they realize that their Rainbow Vacuum manuals are missing is to check the original box and packaging. In many cases they are often still in the bag in the box as not everyone takes them out.
If the original box has already been thrown out, it may be a good idea to check the closet or location where the vacuum is stored as this is a common place for storing manuals and paperwork.
If the manuals are not there, the next most likely place is in a file cabinet or in a stack of paperwork. Many keep manuals and warranty cards in these places in order to make them easier to find.
Locate A New Copy Of The Manual Online
If a thorough search of the home yielded nothing, the next best option is to search online for a copy of the manual. The best way to do this is to first try the manufacturer’s website as they typically keep documentation available for their models.
When searching through the available documentation it may be useful to have the model number of the sweeper handy as this will reduce the time spent searching through the available information.
Many manufacturers provide and easy way to search through their documents by sorting them by model number. Typically, they will have a picture of the model, which makes it easier than ever to find the right one without having to check the vacuum itself.
After finding the correct model, the next step is to download the appropriate documentation. This may be the schematics, the manual, or even a quick start guide if one is available online.
Another option is to contact the manufacturer or the seller directly to ask for a new copy to be emailed or mailed out. This is a good option for those who may have an older model, or were unable to find theirs on the website.
In many cases, the manufacturer or seller will be happy to send a new copy, or may direct owners to a site that has more manuals available for download. This often applies to both newer and older models.
Keep A Copy Somewhere Safe For Future Use
After finding the documentation, it is very important to make a copy of it and store it somewhere safe for future use. Good options include putting a copy in a sealed folder and attaching it to the wall where the vacuum is stored.
Another good location is in a file cabinet or in a box with other appliance manuals. It may be a good idea to put each manual in a folder or sleeve in order to keep them protected and organized for long term storage.
Those who want to make sure that they do not lose their Rainbow Vacuum manuals again may want to consider keeping a digital copy on their computer. They can also back up the copy to a compact disc or an online storage service.
